The Slippery Slope To Madness And Despair

 

I fought my way back to the top from being half way down,

The problem now is that I am looking down on Crazy Town.

 

The surface is so slippery, like it’s covered in some oil,

It’s not going to take so very much, those efforts just to foil.

 

I set one foot upon the slope, it moves down by an inch;

Even now I’m feeling like I’m under pressure’s pinch.

 

With every passing minute my foot slips that bit more,

I struggle against sliding, but I don’t know what it’s for.

 

I turn back to look and see the top is far away,

The tragedy is that I am not yet half way through my day.

 

It’s getting kind of blurry and nothing’s now too clear,

I’m plunging ever nearer to the madness that I fear.

 

The moment that I see exactly how far down I’ve gone,

I panic, am not thinking straight, and slam those brakes hard on.

 

Too fast I was going, now I’m plunging in full skid,

Exactly what I should not do, I went ahead and did.

 

I look straight in front of me and then I feel despair,

The bottom’s not so far away. Hey, I’m nearly there!

 

In Crazy Town there is a space especially for me,

To live my life insanely and forever now be free.
